Best Answer

They both:

- have variables,

- are open sentences,

- consist of two expressions joined by a "verb" (equals or inequality sign),

- have solution sets (which may be empty or have one or more elements).

They both can be negative or positive answer

An equation has a defined answer. An inequality can have a range of answers. 2x=46 x must be 23. m<1 m can be from 0.999 repeating to -∞.

0.4Y+5=1

The boundary of an inequality is formed by the corresponding equation.

You solve an inequality in exactly the same was as you solve an equation, by doing the same thing to both sides. The only difference is if you multiply/divide by a negative number, when you have to turn the inequality around.

An equation has a defined answer. An inequality can have a range of answers. 2x=46 x must be 23. m<1 m can be from 0.999 repeating to -∞.

Inequalities and equations are both the same because they are both mathematical expression and they both use the same steps EXCEPT for the end. Inequalities and equations are both different because equations have an equal sign, the answer is not an interval, and the answer is a specific answer. Not a range. While inequalities don't have an equal sign, its answer is an interval, and it's answer is in a range.

Solving inequalities and equations are the same because both have variables in the equation.

An equation is composed of mathematical statements, which can be arranged to result in a series of equations/inequalities which can be solved for each unknown.

They are not. An inequality cannot, by definition, be the same as an equation.

Although there are similarities, the solutions to a linear equation comprise all points on one line: a one-dimensional object. The solutions to a linear inequality comprise all points on one side [or the other] of a line: a two-dimensional object.

The line that includes whatever variables are included in the equation.

actually by using the line of equation !! the inequalities might be showed!! im nt suree its a guess!! it depends on ur grade but im pretty sure that it does make some sense
